Saturday Morning's Forgotten Heroes: Three Stooges in Who Done It? (1949)

Once again, the Three Stooges are detectives, this time trying to rescue their missing client, in "Who Done It?". Director Edward Bernds had originally intended this for Curly, but the latter's stroke put a kibosh on those plans, and another, lesser known team at Columbia had first crack. Supporting players Emil Sitka, Dudley Dickerson, and Christine McIntyre appeared in the earlier version. Seven years later, this would be remade as "For Crimin' Out Loud", Shemp's final go-round.

I've seen this at least a dozen times over the years. Entertaining, even though you can see the end coming a mile away.

Rating: B.
